He actually was the AWA World Champion from 5/15/65 to 5/22/65, having won (and then lost) the title to Mad Dog Vachon with both matches taking place in Omaha.

This still perplexes me to this day.

Omaha sort of did their own thing with the title...I doubt that Igor's win was ever mentioned or recognized in the Minneapolis-based portion.
Bruiser and depending on where you look Tim Woods also had week-long "Omaha" reigns. Might have been a few more.
